New York Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Serving Victims in Albany, Troy, Saratoga Springs, Schenectady, and all of Upstate New York
It only takes one small mistake or negligent action to change someone’s life forever. Intentional or not, when medical negligence or substandard care results in serious injury or death, the law provides for the victim, or their family, to be compensated.
Have you or someone you love been the victim of medical malpractice? Has negligence or professional misconduct by a medical facility or medical professional resulted in injury? If so, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
It is important to understand that every case is different and medical malpractice is complex, which is why it’s important to have experienced legal counsel walking you through the process.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice and medical negligence involve holding a hospital, physician, or medical professional to professional standards of care, and pursuing compensation for patients who have suffered injury or death.
Hospitals and physicians are charged by law to provide medical treatment consistent with the standard of care in their profession. If a medical professional fails to treat a condition or is responsible for a negligent act or omission, that error can result in a patient’s serious injury or death.
Types of Medical Malpractice Cases
A medical treatment that is unsuccessful does not necessarily mean it will be considered malpractice. However, malpractice does include mistakes such as misdiagnosis of an illness, failing to follow routine medical test protocols or procedures, and/or prescribing a drug that is not appropriate for the patient’s medical condition.
An experienced attorney will be able to build a case to hold hospitals, physicians, and medical professionals responsible for negligent acts or omissions that result in injury, such as;
- Anesthesia Errors
- Emergency Room Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Medication Errors
- Prescription Errors
- Wrong Site Surgery
- Failure to Diagnose
- Orthopedic Device Injury
- VA Hospital Liability
- Birth Injury
- Podiatric Injury
What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Cases in New York?
In the state of New York, you have two years and six months from the date of injury to file a medical malpractice claim.
